Frequently Asked Questions about QuikStrike
Does QuikStrike have Open Interest and Settlement data available?
Yes, the free QuikStrike Essentials version has 5 days of data. The paid subscriptions have 30 days of data. Both versions are updated at the same time each evening – approximately 9pm Chicago time – or when the exchange files become available after that.
What exchanges and products does QuikStrike cover?
We have a variety of exchange data available but our primary source of futures options information is from the CME Group. We cover all liquid and actively traded futures options available on the CME and are regularly adding products as open interest (or general interest) grows.
We also cover ICE (Euribor, Sterling) and Eurex (Bund, Bobl, Schatz) interest rate products and are willing to expand the coverage on each of these exchanges as customer demand increases. We are currently reviewing ICE Energy and Softs as possible additions to the platform.
Does QuikStrike have historical volatility data?
Yes, every level of QuikStrike has some form of historical volatility data. Essentials (sponsored for free by the CME and available via their website) and Professional have the QuikVol (Preview) which has a rolling 30-day window of all the historical data we offer. The Professional+QuikVol subscription increases that window to 1-year.
You can also subscribe to the QuikVol Enterprise Edition for complete access to all our historical volatility data (most Benchmark products are covered from Jan 01, 2007). Learn more from the links listed below.
